Have you ever been out drinking with friends and wondered, “Am I safe to drive?” It can be hard to judge how much alcohol tips over to unsafe levels when you’re drinking. This is why it is usually safer to have a designated driver, or a plan to stay somewhere safe after drinking. This way, you don’t have to try and make that judgment call while under the influence.
What about other instances? Have you ever tried to have a drink before a family event, not wanting to be drunk while there, but felt the need to “take the edge off” before you go? You might not feel like you’re not drunk anymore, but how long does alcohol stay in your system?

You’ve started noticing signs that your loved one might be up to something. At first, you weren’t sure what it was. They were being a bit more secretive about some things and their behavior was changing slightly. Sure, they were happier and more energetic at times, but other times they were more aggressive or depressed. It seemed to come out of nowhere, too.
You were concerned about them, of course you were, so you started trying to figure out what was going on. You tried asking them about it, but they either got upset or changed the topic. Now they’re hiding from you even more.
Finally, you find a white powder hidden in their side of the dresser. Your heart drops. You start asking yourself how you didn’t know before, or if there was something you could’ve done differently. You just want to know why and how you can help. Is there a way out of this?Read More
